As a power user I never go out without a handy battery pack or fast charger no matter the phone I'm using, but having said that my last phone was the Nexus 6 and the P is an improvement.

All in all I'm happy. Wouldn't change for any other given the current lineup available.

File this under 'things you'd think I'd have learned by now'

Over and over, I let myself get stuck in a bad situation, or at least a not-ideal situation, because I think, "This is the best I can do. If I don't take this, I'll have nothing at all."

And yet, every time I take a breath and step out on that limb, or I'm forced to let go of something and move on, something better always comes along. Maybe not the same, but usually better for me. (There is a big difference there.) This has been true my entire life, so you'd think I'd be less resistant to learning, but it's a poverty-mindset, in some ways. Hard to let go of.

I need to remember this. You don't have to be stuck in a shitty situation; there is always a better way.

I don't know what you can even say about this

As +spencer portée put it, the more we find out, the worse it gets. And of course, people are already calling for the mass bombings of muslims in the US. What a fucking clusterfuck.
50 people were killed and 53 injured when gunman Omar Mateen opened fired at the crowded club early Sunday morning.

Right? I wish they'd just waited to speculate about the shooter because that did NOT help things.

So much truth in this quote:

Silence, like protest, is the drug of our time,the way we do something by doing nothing. We march, we wave placards, we go mum, and all avoid touching the levers of power and all avoid stepping on the third rail of truth.

Some good stuff in the book...

How about a respectable classical singer with purple hair? That would be awesome!

If "sorrow-tire" doesn't make you giggle, there's something wrong with you. ;)

Got my new phone, but can't use because it requires a nano sim. My current phone uses a larger one...

Unrelated to anything else posted today...

A collaborative story-telling game I'm going to run is looking for players! Called Invoking the Muse, it's an exploration of the relationship between an artist and a muse in a (sexy, of course!) artists' retreat. If you're interested, please check it out. If you know someone who might be, feel free to share. This is 18+/preferably 21+, thanks. :)

Worth a good read...

It's one thing to say that you would elect the "right" woman candidate, and another to actually do it. It's one thing to claim that you would elect the "right" black candidate, and another thing to actually have done it.

We can't claim to support a progressive agenda if we have not proven that we trust a woman to lead our country.

MY HERO!

Seriously. 
Mimi Sheraton first praised kale in the 1970s as restaurant critic for The New York Times. Her article might have helped make kale cool today. Now Sheraton says she hates the vegetable.

Introduction
If you're looking for Felicity, the voice teacher, you can find my official studio page here:
Felicity Graham Vocal Studios

As for Felicity, the individual...
My primary (mal)function in life is vocal pedagogy and research. I teach singing in general, but also specialize in helping retrain previously injured voices. I get overly enthusiastic about what I do, and can talk about horrific voice disorders for days. (Fair warning: if you ask about it, you will probably get more information than you ever wanted.)

I love life. It's beautiful, it's grand, and if I could, I would sing my way through through each day like a Disney film. 

Gadgets are my friend. If I don't have a smart phone, tablet, e-reader, chromebook and/or other fun things around me, something is very wrong. And yeah, I anthropomorphize my electronics; they love it. 

I'm star-struck. Not Hollywood stars, though. I'm fascinated with space and space travel, and I hope to see colonies on other planets before I leave this one.

If it can't stand up to a double-blind, randomized controlled trial, don't call it science or medicine. It's not. Vitamin C is not a cure for cancer, and vaccination doesn't cause autism. 

Since I cannot see or prove any deity's existence (and neither can anyone else, for that matter), color me agnostic. I don't believe in organized religion, and that includes Libertarianism.

I have no patience for selfish doctrines, be they political or religious. I've had about as much as I can take of "Me First" politics. I could die happy, never seeing another "privatize the [insert government agency here]" post ever again. 

I don't suffer racist fools gladly. Take your "welfare queen" dog whistle and shove it where the sun don't shine. 

Other than that, all I ask is that you engage with me. I'm not here for the fan clubs, I want to make friends. :)
Bragging rights
I'm alive. This is probably more of an accomplishment than you'd think.

Had a lovely Valentine's day meal here. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was impeccable. The prix-fixe holiday menu had lots of interesting options - everything we tried was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Dr. Adler has always been helpful, open to dialog, and very pleasant. Couldn't be happier with the experience I've had.
